Egg Cookery Has lis
There is a difference between
"hard boiled" and "hard cooked"
eggs, says Miss Mary K. Thomas, nu
tritionist of the State College Exten
sion Service. Likewise, soft boiled
eggs may be hard cooked, she says.
In discussing the "how" of egg
cookery, Miss Thomas offered sug
gestions in connection with the see
ond week of the Springtime Egg Fes
tival, a consumer-producer campaign
to increase the use of eggs, which
begins. April 11. This diive has the
suport of C F. Parrish and other
extension puultrymoil bt stale is
lege. The Southeastern Chain Store
Council, through P. D. May, its North
tive in the Egg Festival.
Miss Thomas explained that eggs
should always be cooked slowly, at
moderate, even heat. High cooking
temperature's make eggs tough, "For
either soft cooked or hard cooked
eggs with tender whites," the nutri
tionist said, "the eggs should be
placed in boiling water and then the
vessel should be sot back from tlie
heat where the wuter will simmer

,'Thc same general method is fol

water should be boiling when th?
eggs are put ill, but the heat should
be lowered immediately and t^ie eggs

ists point out that eggs are cheap now |
and the wise honiemaker will use
quantities of them in the family
meals, since they are one of the pro
tective foods needed in every diet.

Cotton May Reduce j
Bee Mortality Rate
Memphis, Tenn?Little thought as
the average person may give to it,
the high mortality rate of bees dur
ing the winter months is a matter of
vast concern to apiarists.
During the winter 10 per cent to
50 per cent of bee colonies are lost
through cold. Surviving colonies be
come greatly weakened through j
mortality caused by excessive heat
produced by the bees in their efforts '
to keep warm.
A recently developed cotton cover '
for beehives may answer the bee
keeper's problems, the National Cot-'
ton Council believes, reducing losses
o less than one per cent. I
Half Of U. S. Farmer? Are
Submerged. ^<i>s Prufettor
New York?Almost half of Ameri
ca's fanners are politically as well as
economically "submerged", Dr. Carl
T. Schmidt, of Columbia University,
says. He announced that a survey
which he made shows that the upper
19 per cent of the farmers, including
corporations with farm lands, re
ceive "the lion's share of government
aid to agriculture."
After only 100 years of intense
cultivation, farm land in the United
States which has been destroyed,

crops are normally harvested.
